Earning a spot and participating in the recent four-day Pebble Beach Basketball Training Camp, Valley seventh-grader Bear Messinger received some valuable hoops instruction from one of the NBA’s top players and best-ever shooters in Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.

Messinger and the other fortunate campers learned shooting skills and the personal perspectives on training, motivation and what it takes to make it to the NBA from Curry, the NBA’s regular season three-point shooting record holder (272 treys), and his father and former NBA standout Dell Curry.
